Owned by brother duo Brad & Luke Revell, The Butter Factory is located in a gorgeous century-old stone building, the coolest place in summer and cosiest in winter. Brad brings over 15 years of hospitality experience, cheffing around the world.  He brings his passion for food, hospitality and live music to this well-loved bar, and has cultivated an outstanding team both front and back of house.  Luke is based in Matakana as the owner/operator of The Rusty Pelican - another outstanding restaurant that is a must-visit!


Discover a fab range of craft beers and unique New Zealand wines, as well as freshly-brewed coffee and killer cocktails. From the kitchen, tuck into our ever-changing specials, sharing platters and gourmet burgers (including gluten free & vegan options), or opt for pub classics like succulent rib eye steak or baby back ribs, there are even options for our littlest customers.


The Butter Factory is proud to support the town community, whether that’s sourcing fresh ingredients from Whangarei farmers, or showcasing the latest creative talent on the stage.   With live music from Thurs - Sat, poetry jams, stand up comedy, Te Reo Maori evenings and jam sessions, every day is different!
